Sitting in the filtered afternoon sun with Juno planning some adjustments, modifications and additions to the motorhome.
Random Ideas jotted in my notebook:
Measurements and sketches for cutting down sun reflectors to place in the side widows and sunroof.
A drawing of one of those cool little rope hammock things for storing fruit in.
A clip on herb pot for the kitchenette. A magnetic notice board. Hooks for hats.
That sort of stuff.

- Tire pressure generator.
- Toolkit. Three question marks next to this one.
- Leveling ramps.
- External BBQ.
- More comfortable outside chairs.
- Filter for the fresh water hose.
